Trump Campaign Strikes Back At Biden Over Iran Comments: ‘He Even Opposed Taking Out Osama Bin Laden’


President Donald Trump’s campaign struck back at 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden Friday after the former vice president said that the Obama administration “solved” the Iran issue.

Biden spoke Friday morning at a campaign event in Iowa where he asserted that the Trump administration’s actions have put an “extremely dangerous problem that our administration had solved and put on the back burner back on the table.”

Trump campaign Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews said in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation that “it’s a joke” to say Biden helped “solve” anything.

“President Trump acted decisively to prevent further attacks and defend American lives and interests,” Matthews told the DCNF. “The world is a safer place today because of it.”

“It’s a joke to say that Joe Biden helped ‘solve’ anything because, to use the words of Obama’s former Secretary of Defense Bob Gates, Biden ‘has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.’ He even opposed taking out Osama bin Laden,” she added.

“His criticisms are meaningless.”

Biden’s comments come after the Thursday death of top Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

The Pentagon confirmed that Trump ordered a U.S. military airstrike that killed Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force. The airstrike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who is the leader of Kata’ib Hezbollah, the group that attempted to storm the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on Dec. 31, 2019.

The Biden campaign did not respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

  1. The only thing Biden ever solved was how to line his pockets with money meant for Ukraine, China and Iraq. Tammany Hall was a monastery compared to the level of corruption in Biden.

    @KilgoreHoover Ronald Reagan once said “If we ever forget that we are one nation under God we will become a nation gone under.

    LIEberal’s idea of “SOLVING PROBLEMS” is to throw as much money as possible at them then RUN AWAY!!!

  5. Obama never thought Iran was a problem. In fact, Obama agreed with the mullahs that America was the Great Satan and Israel was Little Satan. Obama did all he could to advance the interests of Islamists with the exception of Bin Laden, who had grown old and feeble and was thus expendable. If Obama wasn’t a closet Islamist, he sure acted like one.
